Healthcare overhaul: Will US Congress choice be Anabolic or Catabolic?

Fair analogy, as the overhaul objective is to lower premium and medical costs, provide affordable coverage, and reform Medicare... And this can be done in a very anabolic way, simply through environment of state's competition amidst 78% private Insured. This would spark reformation on all levels thus engaging not only higher standards, but a range of plans by entities, with a great deal of experience in offering a larger scope of coverage...

This plan is really the only choice, as leaves Ins Co "Tax-base" still supplying the US Gov, and Hospitals still able to receive foreign paid health services... And avoids mass Insurance Co. layoffs in the private sector...

Increased surplus funds available from increased private sector... would be the correction for "Medicare".. But this would be contingent upon a fiscally responsible Government, ready to trim spending and cease to replicate unsustainable policy...
NOTE: It's becoming obvious that we have yet to elect this, in 2010!
